I have the MapFactor Navigator Free app on my android tablet. How often do they update their app?

"The OpenStreetMap program" on your Android tablet?

I am unaware of an Android app created by the OSM project but there are several map and navigation apps created by other projects and companies that use OSM data. We will need to know which app you have to be able to answer your question.

Re MapFactor Navigator updates .... according to the relevant Google Play website the "Map and app updates are free every month".

Dare I suggest that you at least give Osmand a try as an alternative navigation system. Here in New Zealand I've found that map updates happen about every 7-10 days.

Hi Frankibus, please ask your app provider Android or not to update his database with the newest OSM maps. And ask at the same time what interval they use to update the maps.

There will be some delay, depending upon when that new data finds it way into the App. If it is an online app that renews it data often it should not take too long, but if the App works off line you will need to refresh the data in some way. The data in use may have a date attached to it.
